. this is the current zoning within western soma and you can sees since this was put in place in the plan and harrison street on the middle is essentially the spine. there is a somewhat different character north and south of harrison street that is strongly related to the presence of the freeway which somewhat kind of disconnects the neighborhood there. all of these districts are what are considered soma mixed use districts, and generally north of harrison street where you see a lot -- on this map at least, yellows and greens, but generally mixed use and includes housing and south of harrison street where you have sli primarily housing is extremely limited only to affordable housing and then the far north east corner near fourth and tal mar you have several blocks here sso which is zoned office. the resolution the board of supervisors passed instructing the task force to under go this plan asked them to use the existing zoning as the base. it wasn't looking to necessarily reinvent the wheel or create new districts and that's what the task force came up with and the same philosophy in terms of harr

is a obviously a big deal. it's generally permitted everywhere north of harrison street and the enclave districts and the neighborhood commercial district all permit residential housing. south of harris street except for in the few enclave districts and alleys housing is not permitted so that's this alley and the wmuo. in terms of retail it's permitted in rad and you get more flexibility with it and with retail. there are limits to the size and kind ofs retail and restaurants or bars and general retear and varies by district and there is a size limitation in any district in the planned area. in terms of office it is prohibited complete in the sally. currently had there is a small provision that allows work space professionals to be permitted but it's restrictive. i'm not aware of any projects that used that provision and the office is not permitted in the sally but principally allowed in the wmou and it's as office district. within the commercial districts on ninth, tenth and folsom one story of office is permitted and right now there is none on harrison street and it's only all

on harrison street and it's only allowed in the wmoug in the enclave districts and landmark or article 10 or 11 buildings. pdr and arts -- like a lot of districts in the city. most pdr uses are permitted as a right except in the rad except with the exceptions of some of the uses that are allowed in pdr1 and pdr2. arts activities and allowed in many districts? the city and. >> >> and in western soma protecting the arts is a big deal and generally committed throughout the planned area especially within the sally district. again this goes to the split height, the way that you chief the additional height in sally is dedicate one story in the building to permanent arts activity use and whichever story you dedicate is 15 feet high so you get the extra 15 feet that way. night time entertainment -- currently not permitted in the district but as a conditional use in the sso and a small amount of the planned area. under the new zoning it would become principally permitted within the sally and the wmo districts except in the 200-foot buffers in the enclave districts and that opens up land that

of harrison street. every club that currently exists is guaranteed rights to continue to exist forever. no dangers that we will lose any of the existing night clubs. stronger building code standards are written into the plan and placed the burden of sound proofing for venues. clubs as kobe mentioned will have the rights to expand. would change the club to allow non conforming status to continue on even beyond the demolition of the current building and continue that entertainment use after new construction is completed. we allow all forms of entertainment for expansion in the new area south of harrison street. it's just a logical extension of the purposes of the sally zoning district to have the service and light industrial uses with the prohibition of housing units it seems like a natural extension if the entertainment industry does need to expand sally seems like it's the place for that to occur. i'm sorry. we also welcome entertainment to be part of the folsom street commercial corridor through limited live performance. we don't increase residential capacity along 11 ethstree

construction at corner of 11th and harrison street just before it was ready to open it burned down to the foundation. the 1990 rezoning is predicated on opening south of market up to a denser residential population. you hear the same thing all the time, and that is a foundation of the current western soma community plan before you. we were actually given some pretty firm numbers of residential units that we should produce, and in fact in the eir we even created a higher growth alternative at director's ram's request to meet a higher threshold because the original eastern neighborhoods proposal for our area did not reach that kind of a goal. entertainment at the same time in the 1990 rezoning was recognized as something that was worth preserving. preservation is the key word here. entertainment community is worried about losing their clubs and that is the further thing from our minds is to threaten any of the existing clubs. entertainment was grandfathered in. that means it's here now. it's here to stay. residential became as of right and that's throughout the entire south o

, so 2a essentially -- basically take all the properties here from harrison to folsom and zone those as sally and that is the only change and what that would do the night time entertainment uses that are there would be legal uses and new night time entertainment uses are permitted and no new residential uses are personalitied and the ones that are there would be legal non conforming uses and important note. sally even though it doesn't have the name of pdr district is essentially a pdr housing and doesn't allow housing or office but allows other things, and this gives you look at 2a option. so 2b is essentially the same thing except jumping folsom street to capture the two corner lots. one reason is because one of the existing -- it's vacant but existing night time intraim entertainment location is on the north corner there and see the club and there is another varant taking it across folsom street and 2c is basically doing the same thing, rezoning the corridor to sally, but also taking the two alleys on either side of the corridor and taking the existing residential lots and sof

, harrison and so on that kind of formed the major street grid. some of these blocks are rather large, some of the largest in the city, so 5 25 i think 800 something feet. and theme got miniature neighborhoods in them because they're affected by so-called alley ways because the traffic volumes on those big streets, a lot of the neighborhood life, pedestrian life, the place where kids play, those sorts of things happen on those alley ways. so, kind of a goal hereof could we reclaim those streets? could we rebalance the transportation system? so it wasn't looking just at the needs of through traffic, but that it also serve better neighborhood needs and supported sustainable transportation modes, better walking, cycling, and public transit. so, could we rebalance those major streets and also protect the alley ways? so, this is basically our transportation schema. it's tied very closely to land use. as jim mentioned we didn't do what's happened in other neighborhood plans, which is do all the land use planning and try to figure out the transportation planning later. we needed these things integ

well, when we were in san francisco, we met a lawyer, harrison shepherd, who's making quite a national reputation for himself, because he is coming out to say that the legal profession has it all wrong, that instead of being a profession that is fighting, that is constantly suing, that is constantly creating tension and conflict in society, what lawyers are meant to do is to understand those ethical patterns of action, see how conflicts can be resolved, and in fact, he goes so far as to say that the legal profession, essentially, is a spiritual practice. pretty far afield, but i thought, you know, why don't we do a shocker- imagine having a lawyer speak about his profession as a spiritual practice. so if we could, let's just take a few minutes and listen to harrison shepherd, our lawyer friend in san francisco. >> you know, originally, traditionally, there were three professions. there were three professions- they were the professions of theology- the clergy; the profession of medicine- the doctors; and the profession of law. and these three professions, what it means to be

development in this area in western soma, and if you take housing off the table west of harrison then you're going to leave a vast number of lots that are right now parking lots, car lots, or under lose used -- facilities and could be housing down the line. as i recall the housing was going to be about 6,000 plus units and now 6,000 plus 200 units. it's not addressing the needs of the mid-market workers and those people that want to live close to housing. the other thing i wanted to bring up which wasn't mentioned here is hotels. i know cory and jim worked long and hard on this and i know hotels is a peripheral component but it's a major employer in san francisco and there are programs at san francisco state and city college and right now the hotels are restricted to 75 rooms and 25 along folsom and frankly it's just not going to have many hotels built under those restrictions. in fact i would suggest probably none and i think the hotel rooms count need to go beyond townsend and clear need for it. there is not enough in the city and major employer and where you get jobs and no hotel

are permitted in the proposed plan south of harrison it fails to adequately support the viability of the area for the future entertainment of western soma. the citizen status as legal non conforming uses and continuation in the plan effectively treats these important stakeholders as an after thought. night time entertainment is prohibited in much of the area. it divides and relocated it rather than treating as assets in the community. i have learned to come and respect how professionally the businesses operate and how passionately they care about the community and the impact they have on the community around them and furthermore i am impressed with the work of the entertainment commission, the police department and leaders in the industry such as c mac and work tirelessly to make entertainment safe and accessible in san francisco. our commission has the power to cite, permit with condition, fine and suspend licenses to problematic venues and provides a direct path for residents and neighbors and anyone in the community to address concerns related to entertainment in every neighborhood. i

of harrison the idea is it would be opened up for night time entertainment use and unless we specifically made it conditional use on that corridor and for implementation purposes could be tricky, but as the options are before you it's permitted as a right. >> okay. i don't mind housing and maybe it's housing in these adjacency areas too and to approve with certain conditions like better sound proofing that could allow it to happen. i am concerned about the others and two and three and have the entire corridor to be night time entertainment with the other spaces. that would happen and have this one block concentration of entertainment uses, so i don't mind 2a and 2b, but i would at least like to see if it's expanded beyond the current uses and maybe cu and something now a restaurant within that district becomes an entertainment use. that's not done as of right but as a cu process but the one are there grand forthed in -- >> intl something along those lines. >> i would offer a few comments and i am confused by the optionses and i get the tone there is restrictive compared to other plans tha
